Women's Oral History Project flyer and postcard (1981)
The Cambridge Women's Oral History Project began in the fall of
1980,with funding from the Cambridge Arts Council. For the project,
young women, often high school girls, received training to record
the oral histories of older local women. The project’s goal
was not only to preserve the histories of these women, but also
to encourage inter-generational interaction and to improve the younger
generations' understanding of women's history. From
the Oral History Center records.
